WHO'S Who IN America 



A Biogicaphical Dictionary of Notable Living Men and Women 
of the United States. Established, 1899, by Albert Nelson 
Marquis. Revised and Reissued Biennially. 



"Who's Who in America" aims to give a brief, crisp, personal 
sketch of every hving man and woman in the United States 
whose position or achievements make his or her personaHty of 
general interest, and tells just the things every intelligent person 
wants to know about those who are most conspicuous in every 
walk of life. 

A valuable feature of the book will be found in the appended 
addresses. No other work has ever attempted the laborious 
task of finding and furnishing the addresses of leading Ameri- 
cans in all parts of the world. Thus, the book possesses not 
only the best attributes of a Biographical Dictionary, but is 
also a handy Directory of those living people of the United 
States in whom almost everybody is interested. 

"Who's Who in America" is thoroughly revised, brought 
down and reissued biennially. No one who aims to keep abreast 
of the times can afford to be without a copy at his elbow con- 
stantly. The edition for 1908-9 contains 16,216 personal 
sketches and 2,400 pages. The price of this edition is $4.00 
per copy. The price of future editions will be $5.00 per copy.

PREFACE 



In this volume are gathered Hfe-sketches of the nearly Ten Thou- 
sand leading New Englanders. The aim has been to include, as nearly as 
possible, all the living men and women who, at the present time, occupy 
places of distinctive creditability in the New England states — the men 
and women whose worth and work count for most in all worthy lines of 
effort; and the sketches contain just those things every intelligent per- 
son wants to know about conspicuous New Englanders in every walk 
of life. Each sketch is a plain narration of facts, shorn of verbiage. 
There is not a word of praise or criticism in the volume ; no fulsome 
eulogy, no unnecessary comment. The fewest words possible have been 
employed to present the salient features in each career, with a view to 
combining brevity with lucid statement. r^''tl'f .^S^^"? 

Nearly two years of painstaking labor have been consumed in 
bringing together these personal data, and although the task has been 
both tedious and difficult" it is confidently 'believed that the result, here 
presented, will not only justify the large expenditure of time, labor and 
money required to produce the volume, but will also meet the reason- 
able expectations of those for whom the compilation is intended to 
serve as a useful book of reference. 

There have been numerous biographical compendiums, so called, 
pertaining to the New England states, separately and collectively, but 
none has approached the present volume as to the number of its repre- 
sentative living subjects, nor as to the completeness and authenticity of 
essential details concerning them. 

The thousands of persons who are familiar with Who's Who in 
America (and who is not familiar with it?) will at once recognize in 
that well-known standard biographical dictionary of notable living 
Americans the prototype of Who's Who in New England. That 
publication is, indeed, the model upon which Who's Who in New 
England has been fashioned, with one distinct difference : Who's Who 
in America has to do with the notable men and women of all the states 
in the union — living Americans of national and international promi- 
nence — whereas Who's Who in New England deals only with resi- 
dents of the New England states, or with persons who are closely 
identified with the interests and activities of those states. It will be seen, 
therefore, that while the present volume owes its inception to its more 

3 



4 PREFACE 

pretentious predecessor, it by no means attempts to supplant or super- 
sede the latter, but aims, rather, to serve as a useful supplement and 
companion to the larger work. This will be better appreciated when it 
is known that Seven Thousand and Seventy of the personal sketches in 
the New England book are not contained in the national volume, and 
indebtedness is acknowledged for nearly Twenty-five Hundred sketches 
borrowed from Who's Who in America. 

With Who's Who in America and Who's Who in New England 
side by side on the reference shelf, any library, private or public, will be 
enriched with biographical data, many of which are nowhere else in 
print, and most of which are nowhere else accessible for reference pur- 
poses in any form. 

The information contained in this volume has been procured, almost 
without exception, from first hands. Each sketch was submitted for 
revision and correction, and in nearly every instance received the ap- 
proval of the subject of the sketch. 

Persistent effort has been made to procure the requisite data from 
all persons entitled to a place in the book, and if names are missing 
which should appear, the fault must be charged to those persons who 
failed to furnish the necessary information, although frequently re- 
quested to do so. Instances of this kind, however, have been compara- 
tively few, and a large majority of the persons applied to courteously 
and generously responded. 

It is the present purpose of the publishers to make such periodical 
revision of Who's Who in New England as may seem to be called 
for by those who find the book useful. With this purpose in view, 
suggestions of appropriate new names and other improvements are 
invited. Such suggestions will be thankfully received and given due 
consideration. 



Many valuable helps and suggestions have been extended to the 
publishers of Who's Who in New England and occasion is here 
taken to express grateful recognition of these favors. Among those 
who have extended special courtesies are the following : Gen. Charles 
H. Taylor of the Boston Globe; Mr. Marquis F. Dickinson and 
Mr. James E. Cotter, well-known lawyers of Boston; Edwin A. 
Grosvenor, LL. D., Amherst College ; Mr. B. O. Flower, editor of The 
Arena; Mr. Nathan Haskell Dole, author: M. H. Richardson, M. D., 
and Clarence J. Blake, M. D., Boston.
